What is it?
Votiva with FormaV is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure. FormaV harnesses non-ablative radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat the targeted vaginal areas allowing for the treatment of sexual dysfunction or as an adjunct to Kegel exercises. It is cleared for temporary improvements in blood circulation, muscle pain relief and muscle relaxation.
Are you a candidate?
The versatility of the technology allows the operator to provide a custom solution to address the variety of women’s health and wellness concerns that occur due to aging, hormonal changes, or physical damage. This is an ideal non-surgical procedure if your vagina and the surrounding muscles have altered and stretched from pregnancy, weight loss, or age.
How does it work?
The FormaV’s non-ablative radiofrequency energy which gently heats the internal vaginal canal (vaginal mucosa) and external labial tissues up to 43 degrees Celsius and sustains this for up to 30 minutes per session. It is the only device that monitors the vaginal lining temperatures and cuts off the temperature and sustains the end point automatically during the treatment, preventing over-heating and burns, but also ensuring the best possible tightening. The sustained, gentle, non-painful heat results in remodeling of the vaginal mucosa and sub-mucosal tissues with increased tightening and mucosal secretions. The FormaV can be used to tighten and rejuvenate the vaginal canal itself or the external genitalia, such as the Labia Minora and Labia Majora.
Are there any maintenance treatments following the FormaV?
While most women see wonderful results after one treatment it is recommended that a series of three treatments once a month for three months is unsurpassed for the best and longest lasting results. To protect your investment maintenance treatment is recommended once a year.
What are the risks or side effects?
FormaV treatments are essentially painless and minimal down time. Patients can resume normal activities including exercise that day with the exception that they may want to avoid sexual intimacy for three days. Some patients compare the feeling during treatment to a hot stone massage. The most reported side effect from some patients are that they may see slight redness in the treated area which should subside within a few hours.
